If you happen to have $1.2 million burning a hole in your pocket, why not scoop up a 12,000 square-foot historic mansion? You know, keep it hella casual and very sexy.  

Built in 1902 for an esteemed pharmaceutical businessman, organizer of the Detroit Orchestral Association, and trustee of the Detroit Museum of Art, the Frederick Stearns mansion blends Medieval architecture and modern design with straight-up whimsical detailing. 

Among some of those details are a Moravian Pottery fireplace, stained glass windows, and engraved wood panels. Aside from being a total bitch to maintain (how the hell are you going to clean those beams, though?), the Frederick Stearns Mansion boasts 23 private suites, nine bathrooms, a grand staircase, and a foyer that could rival the damn Titanic.
